Credit where it's due: the NYT has done excellent work here investigating Trump's taxes. Doesn't make up for their awful Beltway coverage the past few decades, but they deserve a cookie for this one.

Wouldn't it have been nice for voters to know all this information during the GOP primaries or the 2016 general election?

Experts say Trump's EPA moving to loosen radiation limits

Quote:
The EPA is pursuing rule changes that experts say would weaken the way radiation exposure is regulated, turning to scientific outliers who argue that a bit of radiation damage is actually good for you — like a little bit of sunlight.

White House transcript misquoted Trump on "never thinking" | Miami Herald

From the linkBut then some reporters noticed some odd: The official White House transcript that was sent out to members of the media initially recorded Trump as saying that Vega is “never thanking” — and not “thinking,” according to MSNBC. It could be a typo, the outlet conceded.

From the linkI am seeing a lot of inaccurate talk and allegations online about the crowd photos from Friday's Trump inauguration that are simply not borne out by the FACTS. Now I see my own friends reposting this disinformation on Facebook.
Only one news organization had a still photographer atop the Washington monument for the inauguration and I assigned him to be there. This photo by Reuters News Pictures staff photographer Lucas Jackson was taken at 12:01:18 p.m. on Friday and not much earlier as many people are trying to claim.
Thanks for the link.

I'm catching up on the Daily Show. I think this is the 1st October episode. Trevor Noah has just alluded to "Trump" being more orange than ever with the comment "I don't think I've seen him that pumpkin spiced before".

Nikki Haley resigns as ambassador to UN?

Does a departure from "Trump"'s team mean anything any more? Did she push or was she jumped? Is it just a case of the revolving door caught her butt this time?

The money side, check.

Probably a political side too ... somehow it reminds me of Australian policy of taking Aboriginal children away from their families and having them fostered/adopted into white families "for their own good".

More on Nikki "not leaving to spend more time with my family, not leaving to prepare for a 2020 presidential bid" Haley: Nikki Haley: the latest Trump enabler to ruin her shot at redemption | Richard Wolffe | Opinion | The Guardian

I'm not familiar with this Richard Wolffe but he's clearly made of more optimistic stuff than I am. This article is full of predictions of doom for the "Trump" administration, and I just don't see it happening any time soon.

Quote:
A president ... clinging on to power by his fingernails ...

But Trump is a beached whale of a boss, taking his last gasps of power before the House subpoenas start flying, and the Mueller investigation lays out its evidence of conspiracies and corruption like so much captured contraband.

The Baby scoop era supposedly ended in the 70s, but there are people keeping the tradition alive, including crisis pregnancy centers aligned with private adoption agencies that operate even Magdalene laundry style homes for unwed mothers.

They always intended to do this. They weren't even keeping track of who those kids' parents were because they never intended to give them back.
